Big Fake Animals and Into the Wild

OK, I have a confession to make. I have finally admitted to myself that I have a tendency to take pictures of giant fake animals. Birds, bison, whatever. When I see them, I want to pull the car over, grab the camera and take a picture or two. OK, probably three or four. I'm trying to rein in the compulsion, but from time to time (like now) you will be subjected to giant animals. These were photograped on Hwy 14 in Huron SD

Then there was this amphitheater, also in Huron which was in a park with a large lawn area. I imagine it gets a lot of use in the summer. I just liked it, that is why I'm putting up a picture.


While I was out working, a woman I spoke to told me that I really needed to go to the Cabaret in Carthage, as it isn't far from where I was staying. She told me the food was good and reasonably priced and that part of the film, Into the Wild http://www.intothewild.com/ was filmed there and that the main character Christopher McCandliss (sp?) had lived and worked in the area for a time. I never made it there for a meal, but did drive over to take a look. If Linda from the Greenville SC Census office sees this, these pics are for you. Linda really likes the film.
